    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at EY (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    On campus first round interview. Then got the on-site interview one month later.

    The on-campus interview is basically walking through the resume and asking me research related questions. The on-site interview is a mixture between technical and behavioral questions. The behavioral questions are very standard and like in any interview book. One question they repeatedly ask is that if you can sustain long hours of work if there is a upcoming urgent issue. The technical questions are very general. They do not ask you to solve specific math or coding problems, but ask you to describe the high-level strategy for analyzing a data set for a particular problem. For example, what model to use for a XX data set, what can be the typical problems, etc..

    Interview Questions

    • You utilize a model for a real data set. This model has a set of assumptions. How do you know that these assumptions are consistent with the real data?   1 Answer
    • Describe a survival model that you have experience with.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend who works at the Financial Services Office.

    Interview Process:
    1) Phone screen with HR: Basically HR wanted to understand my background and make sure I have consulting experience in order to move forward.
    2) Phone screen with Partner: Since my consulting experience happened 5 years ago, the Partner wanted to make sure I still had the skills. He knew I did not have FS skills but he was comfortable that I had consulting skills so I moved on to the Super Day.
    3) Super Day: I went to the NY office and had 5 back to back 45-minute interview. The first interview was with the Partner, second interview was with HR, third interview was with a senior manager, 4th interview was with a manager and the final interview was with another senior manager. The interviews were conversational. Most of them told me during the interview that it was easier to teach FS skills than teach someone to become a consultant.

    The feedback that I received was that all of them believed I had consulting skills but the deciding factor was the lack of FS skills.

    Interview Questions

    • The last senior manager asked me technical FS questions.   Answer Question
